ummm.....what do yo mean it is horrible coffee...I personally do not like electric machines...they do not get the water hot enough....the water should be just below boiling if it is not it will not extract the flavor from the coffee..if you use boiling water it will sour the coffee...my suggestion is to keep it on your counter and hide your french press behind it!

Here's how it's bad.

It's almost like it tastes weak--no matter how much coffee we use. In other words, it tastes bland. Something's missing. We've tried several different kinds of coffee; we've cleaned the machine; we've taken out the water filter; we've used hot water; we've used cold water.
We've grounded coffee, and we've used coffee that's already grounded.

I've also noticed that we get a lot of small grounds in the bottom of our coffee cups.

I'd appreciate any help you all may give.

French Press!

I second topher's French Press suggestion- coffee just tastes better made via French Press, and it gives you absolute control of brewing time and water temp.
